No, Sarah, don't go! (UPDATED)

Nah, just kidding. Later, Sarah:

WASILLA, Alaska -- In a stunning announcement, Gov. Sarah Palin said Friday morning she will resign her office in a few weeks.

Speculation has swirled for weeks, perhaps months that Palin would not seek re-election in 2010 as she pursues a political career on the national stage. The former vice presidential candidate has long been rumored to be considering a run at the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

Palin did not address those rumors at the press conference at her Wasilla home, during which she did not take questions from reporters.

Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated as her successor at the Governor's Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks on Sunday, July 26, Palin said.
What's so cute about this is that Sarah thinks she's doing this so she can try to be preznit in 2012. Because 2008 went so well. Because she played so well with people outside the Republican base.

Right. Good girl, Sarah.

UPDATE: Wait, wait, wait, the Andrea Mitchell lady says that "sources close to" the Moose Queen say she's leaving politics forever? I say bullshit. Either that or some really awful scandal is about to be revealed and she's ducking out. Hm!
